Second OT Game In A Row Results In Tie For Women's Hockey
Posted: Sunday, December 4, 2005
EAU CLAIRE - The UW-Eau Claire women's hockey team has played two games this weekend against Northern Collegiate Hockey Association (NCHA) rivals Lake Forest and both have gone to extra play, with today's game ending in a 2-2 tie.
Yesterday the Blugolds lost 3-2 in overtime in the first extra period game this season for either team. Now each team has two such games under its belt.
Eau Claire got on the board 7:21 into the opening period on a Karen Hebert (Jr.-Lakeville, MN/Holy Angels) evenhanded goal. Margaret Campbell (Fr.-Plymouth, MN/Wayzata) and Laura Brackey (Sr.-Oakdale, MN/Tartan) had the assists on this first score.
The Blugolds opened up a two-score lead with an Amber Stevenson (Jr.-Eagan, MN) score at 2:05 into the second. Allie Campbell (Jr.-Plymouth, MN/Wayzata) assisted Stevenson on this even-sided score.
The two-goal lead evaporated in the last half of the third for the Blugolds. The home team gave up a costly shorthanded goal for the second game in a row at 12:39. To make matters worse, the Foresters tied it up soon thereafter at 14:59 on an even-sided score. The 2-2 game remained through the third and through the extra period. Lake Forest got off four overtime shots on goal while the Blugolds had three.
The Foresters had 38 shots on goal in the entire game and Jill Arendt (So.-Plymouth, MN/Wayzata) stopped 36 of them. The Blugolds made her counterpart deal with 29 shots, two of them making it to the net.
Neither team managed a power-play score and Eau Claire even allowed the shorthanded goal on one of its advantages. Lake Forest had four advantages and the Blugolds had five.
Eau Claire is 2-6-1 on the year with an NCHA record 0-3-1. The Foresters are now 3-0-1 in the NCHA and 9-1-1 overall. They were in first in the NCHA standings going into today's game.
Next weekend marks the next action for women's hockey when the team heads to UW-Superior Friday and Saturday. Friday's game is to begin at 7:00 p.m. while a 2:00 p.m. start time is listed for Saturday's affair.
